This is a busy and dynamic team offering a statutory service to Looked After Children and Care Leavers, some of whom have very complex needs. We work with Young People from the age of 16, potentially up to 25 with the aim of effecting a smooth transition to adulthood for our Care Leavers.

About You

You should have excellent communication skills and a persistent approach when engaging with resistance. We support Young People to make constructive plans for their future and we are committed to gaining positive outcomes in all aspects of their life including health, accommodation, education employment and training. You should therefore be able to show assessment, planning and intervention skills to meet needs and address risk. You should be passionate about helping Young People be aspirational and strive towards attainment. You should also feel comfortable in tackling complex and challenging needs, risks and behaviours. You will need to understand the disadvantage faced by Care Leavers, many of whom have had traumatic life experiences, and be able to work creatively and collaboratively to redress this balance.

About Us

This is your opportunity to join us at an exciting time as we have strong ambitions for the borough. 

Bolton is a great place to work. We are a welcoming organisation that wants to contribute to a place where people feel active, connected and prosperous. We are passionate about improving the outcomes and experience of Bolton people. We want Bolton to be a vibrant place built on strong cohesive communities, successful businesses and healthy, engaged residents.

As an employer we want to thank our employees for their hard work and commitment, by giving them the opportunity to access a range of exclusive rewards and benefits, including discounts and exclusive gym membership prices and salary sacrifice schemes. In addition, we offer a generous annual leave allowance, flexible work opportunities, access to a Pension Scheme, as well as a range of employee wellbeing and support services.
